Hasbro has really knocked it out of the park with the 6" G.I. Joe Classified Series figure line. The latest craze was the arrival of the B.A.Ts and more soldiers for Cobra Commanders army. However, the next best thing has finally arrived as Walmart Con kicks off today and includes the arrival of Retro Card Back G.I. Joe Classified figures. That is right, 6" collectors can remember the nostalgia of the 3.75" line with the Classified line. Four figures dropped today with love for both sides with the Baroness, Destro, Lady Jaye, and Gung-Ho. All figures feature a new retro deco compared to their previous release and a great set of accessories.
It is the packaging this time that really gets me excited with a complete recreation of that classic G.I. Joe style we all love and bigger this time. Each G.I. Joe Classified Card Back figure is a Walmart Exclusive and is priced at $22.97. They are expected to release in September 2022, and pre-orders are live right here and be aware Walmart Con is being crappy as usual, so patient grasshoppers. I hope Hasbro continues to drop these classic card back figures as I know I want a Cobra Commander to display.

Joe Classified Series package will make a mark on shelves."
